A great list of ingredients and a clever name. Add to this a
recommendation from a friend and the drink of the night is pretty much sealed.
The original recipe calls for Tanqueray but Hendricks works well considering its obvious cucumber background. The drink is a bit sweet but so pleasantly so…
Ingredients in my version:
6 to 8 cilantro leaves with some stems
2 slices of cucumber, skin on
3 slices of jalapeño, seeds in
¾ oz fresh lemon juice
½ oz agave syrup
½ oz Cointreau
2 oz gin
1. Muddle cilantro, cucumber, and jalapeño with lemon juice and agave syrup.
2. Add remaining ingredients.
3. Shake well and strain into an ice-filled glass.
4. Garnish with de Arbol chile.
Oh and i just found a rosemary version (sort of) of this drink – a possible candidate for tomorrow: stay tuned 🙂
